16 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This multimedia projector has an average expert rating of 75 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and projectorcentral.com.

Good Product Quality

Three NEC M402 owners agreed that the product was good quality. Pcmag.com said on expert review site PC Mag two years ago “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M402X projector($959) offers high quality for data images”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC NP-M402X projector delivers high quality for data screens, plus conveniences like 3D support”. Two years ago Pc Mag wrote in their NEC M402 review “Excellent quality for data images” and gave it a score of 4 stars.

Good Brand

NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all multimedia projectors NEC is one of the superior brands.

Good Size

One customer wrote in their reviews that the product was heavy and bulky. Projectorcentral.com said in their review “It's also heavy enough, at eight pounds, not to mention bulky enough, at 3.5" x 13.4" x 10.1" (HWD), to make it more a” and rated it 79 out of 100.

Good High Def TV

One customer mentioned in their reviews that this projector was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Crn.com wrote in their review of this projector “This one has full HD resolution and supports 3-D, HDMI copy protection, direct USB input, centraliz” .
